Reading room reopens from 19 November for a limited number of visitors

On Thursday November 19 the KB will reopen for a limited number of visitors. Due to Covid19 measures and renovation work, we only have 30 seats available at a time in our reading rooms. Please note that our reading rooms are, for the time being, only accessible for collection consultations. To avoid disappointment, we recommend to book a workplace in advance. New reservations can be made as of November 17.

From 1 December, wearing a face mask is mandatory in the public areas of the KB.
